|soJust like the hair on your head, eyebrows can thin out or stop growing. There are a number of medical reasons that your head hair and eyebrows may begin to thin. Stopping or reversing this phenomenon is dependent on the medical condition that you suffer from, but there is great news! My Absolute Beauty specializes in distributing the absolute best eyebrow shaping, tinting and microblading products. In addition, our world-renowned beauty expert trainers spend their days training and certifying beauty professionals across the nation on how to use our incredible products to help spread positivity and beauty.
So join us in today’s post as we discuss 11 common reasons for eyebrow thinning or hair loss and how My Absolute Beauty can help.
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to mistake the body’s own hair follicles as invaders. So this causes thinning and loss of hair and prevents new hair growth. Alopecia causes loss of hair on all parts of the body and can even cause scarring in some places.
Also called atopic dermatitis, it is a condition that affects the skin primarily, but can interfere with hair growth. Eczema causes itching, redness, and irritation due to an oversensitive immune system. The condition can also cause the skin to ooze and crust that can cake the eyebrow, causing them to break when the plaque is washed off.
3. Thyroid Disease
Thyroid disorders cause a host of problems. Hyperthyroidism and hyperthyroidism disrupt hormones and mess with metabolism. Thyroid disease is a common cause of disruption in hair growth and hair loss.
4. Stress and Anxiety
Both stress and anxiety are internal responses and mental states that can manifest as physical symptoms. Stress and anxiety can affect eyebrow hair in several different ways. First, it can actually influence oxygen and hormone levels that impact hair growth. And, they can cause a person to nervously pick at their eyebrows, causing the hair to thin and break.
5. Pregnancy and Childbirth
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all cause hormones to fluctuate wildly. This has an impact on hair growth and hair loss. While some women may experience shiny hair growth during pregnancy due to overactive growth hormone and oily sebaceous glands, some women experience dry, cracked, or dull hair when hormones, vitamins, and nutrients are all rerouted to the growing child rather than their own hair.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that causes skin cells to multiply rapidly. This build-up of skin cells causes scaly plaques that can block pores and suffocate hair follicles, preventing hair growth. For hair that has grown before, the rapidly multiply skin cells can cause hair to break or become ingrown.
7. Vitamin Deficiency
Vitamins and nutrients all play a vital role in the homeostasis of the human body. Each nutrient can affect individual body systems and can work in combination with other vitamins and nutrients. Some nutrients promote hair growth, and in their absence can prevent growth and cause hair loss. Therefore, a deficiency of other vitamins and nutrients can cause thinning or breakage of hair that does grow. Nutrients that can affect hair loss and cause thinning include:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B-7 — Biotin
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B-12
Deficiencies can occur for a variety of reasons.
8. Seborrheic Dermatitis
It can be caused by either a fungus or an overproduction of skin oil. Seborrheic dermatitis causes dandruff, which can affect any body of hair, including eyebrows. The condition can affect hair growth and the uncomfortable itching can lead to hair damaging scratching.
9. Contact Dermatitis
Contact dermatitis does not directly affect hair follicles or influence hair growth or thinning. However, contact dermatitis causes irritated skin when it comes in contact with a toxin or an allergen. If the area on or around the eyebrow is affected, the inflammation may disrupt hair growth and scratching or medication to clear the condition can cause hair damage. Typically these symptoms resolve once they are no longer in contact with the irritant, but can leave behind broken, damaged hair.
In the late 40s, estrogen levels in women and testosterone levels in men begin to decline rapidly so it can lead to several classic signs of aging, including thinning of hair. For older people who are able to maintain stable levels of hormones and avoid thinning or hair loss, eyebrows are not exempt from graying!
Chemotherapy is an effective, aggressive cancer treatment that works by attacking all rapidly dividing cells in the body. Unfortunately, these cells include healthy hair follicles. So this is why hair tends to fall out in clumps, and does not spare any bodily hair. Many people who undergo chemotherapy end up losing all of their hair on their head and face including eyebrows and eyelashes.
